I have been to Pompei 30 years ago, this year again, as far as I can recalled. Many signs and new ruins are now available where they were in before. Excellent experience.

Pompeii was very high on the must see list but i was a little disappointed. I was expecting to find the area as it would have been when the Volcanic ash preserved it. I thought the people and animals would still be on the streets...More
